Huge aromas of raisins, dried blackberries, black cherries are joined by accents of bitter chocolate, black tea, and leather on the complex and deep nose. This is relatively sweet, with huge acids keep this lively, if quite creamy with black cherry fr...

|Varietal:||Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon|
Hints of ginseng and carob accent the candied cherry and blackcurrant aromas that gain a dusting of cocoa and cedar with air. This is broad and low in the mouth on entry, with plenty of toasty, spicy accents to the slow-to-emerge dark fruit. Hints of g...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
Fresh if perhaps slightly fudgy on the nose which shows lots of ripe fresh fruit, a little smoky accent and a tight slightly vegetal floral topnote with lots of incipient tobacco character. In the mouth this is very fresh and a little tight, with good ...

|Region:||Canada » British Columbia » Okanagan Valley|
This is a a true expression of locale for this delicious, delicate variety from the south of France; a strong scent of fleshy sub-tropical fruit - apricots, peaches and lychee nuts predominate - as expected. There is a ginger infused accent on the apr...
|Region:||Italy » Lazio » Frascati|
Slightly green and vegetal aromas on the nose recall garden vegetables with hints of tomato leaf laid over rather sweet and slightly spicy lemon and lime fruits with just a hint of melon as well. This is clean and focused in the mouth. At’s a narrow ...

|Region:||Portugal » Terras Do Sado » Setúbal|
A blend of Castelão (38%), Touriga Nacional (34%), Touriga Francesa (28%) Smells a bit like Syrah, peppery, inky a bit olivy, and filled with briary blue and black fruit, spice notes and a late hint of vanilla. Pretty rich on entry with an attractive...
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Santa Rosa|
Eucalyptus accent on the nose. The nose is also quite earthy. The color of this wine is notable and gets your attention. It's a very deep, dark almost violet/black. On the palate there are dark, overripe fruits. Mainly black cherry but with a...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
Soil, earth, prosciutto and stemmy pinot fruit greet the nose with an accent of well-integrated wood spice. Nice acids in balance with the pure fruit. This has a lovely, unforced feel with dark raspberry and cherry tone to the fresh fruit. There are ni...

|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Barossa » Eden Valley|
Lovely mineral water, sandy soil, and floral notes accent the Meyer lemon core of fruit. Rich and deep on entry this has absolutely wonderful freshness and fine cut. It expresses a nice mineral edge early on with subtle apple flavors topped with a fine...

I’m kicking off this year's series on value wines by taking a look at one the regions least commonly associated with value: Bordeaux. Now that’s not because Bordeaux doesn't offer value, it’s just that their value wines get little attention from the media. I’m not sure why that is. Why the big names glom all of the media’s attention. I think bac... Read More
I took some heat last week for my less than glowing review of Brunello di Montalcino. While those wines were attractive, if you’re suggesting to people that they spend money on wines from Montalcino this year, my money is on the Rossos. I’m here to try and present the value proposition to readers. Sure values come in shapes and sizes, may they a... Read More
Readers of these pages will know that I have not been the biggest supporter of Brunello di Montalcino. I had some harsh words for the wines as a whole in the pre-Brunellogate era, and have often been left wanting by many of the wines. Unfortunately I am here today to report a bit of the same. Granted I am going to be discussing the 2009 vintage,... Read More

It’s the heart of winter here in the northern hemisphere, a time when our attentions turn to robust red wines. One wine in particular seems to be relegated to these cold months, and that is a bit of a shame. I’m talking about the often misunderstood Amarone. A powerful wine, one with relatively high alcohol and rich flavors, but one that often i... Read More
We’re now on episode five of cellar clean-up, today focusing on a handful of White Meritage Blends. I would love to have had additional examples to compare these wines to, but that was not to be. It’s a fascinating, if tiny category of wines. In the face of both the popularity of and obviously suitable sites for red Meritage Blends one could be ... Read More
62% Semillon, 38% Sauvignon BlancHugely aromatic with intense floral framed notes of spiced, dried lemons draped over melon, dried peach and grapefruit aromas. A little soft on entry and smaller scaled in the mouth than the nose suggest. This delivers rather vibrant and taut melon, apricot and grapefruit flavors with a nice gooseberry accent to ...

Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More
I was fortunate to be able to attends last weeks ZAP Experience. As you might know this year’s event differed from those in years past as the event was broken down into additional components. The trade and media portion of the Experience is now a discreet tasting, and the grand tasting has been broken out into sections, that took place on the g... Read More
